It's was a horrible accident. My heart goes out to the families. The news did a cover story on thisRead More stretch of highway. It showed 172 accident 6 deaths and 58 injuries. The state needs to take a look into that. I do feel his bail is excessive. Let alone made him out to look like a murderer who intentionally did this. I guarantee he wishes it was him rather than to take 4 lives. I think there are many occupations that don't require log books yet these people have been up for 24 hrs + and they get behind the wheel. Yes he should be held responsible but There are people committing horrific crimes that don't get that kind of bail. I know when something horrible happens they want to throw the book at that person. Unfortunately nothing will change the outcome. A perfect example is cell phones. Many deaths have resulted from people causing accidents while on the phone. It's against the law to use them when driving but I see it every day. I will say people are responsible for there actions and there the only ones to blame. Don't put the blame on the state police. That's not on them. I feel for them and everyone on that scene because no doubt it was a horrific accident scene

Truck traffic on 55 is insane, its getting way out of control and just today there were 11 trailersRead More with 9 of them going 3x3. Its like driving on the same tracks as a locomotive train.

What's with the mention of the restriction for a vision disability. I have one of those on myRead More license. It means I wear corrective lenses. The guy most likely fell asleep at the wheel, you can do that while having perfect eyesight.

Do they believe bad kids are being Bused into the City of Chicago to shoot people??? Parents where are you kids right now, where are they at night?

Stop the revolving door of justice(nonjustice!)!! Once they are involved in a crime involving a gun,Read More they should be sentenced to Hard Labor.. That's right, just like the Old Days!! No more of this crap where they lay around and get free room and board! Put them out in chain gangs and let them work! Screw the bleeding hearts who want to be nice to felons! Most of these people are hardened criminals..once again, if you do the crime, you do the time..But, now make it Hard Time that may sway them to straighten up!!

ATTENTION PATCH EDITOR ET AL.... This fellow Louis Fasullo needs to be reported to localRead More authorities. His comment is not only highly confused...but also borders on a confession of sorts. Check into his ISP address...and contact appropriate persons.

While she is most assuredly mentally ill, she definitely planned this event by hiding thatRead More sledgehammer in the closet. Obviously she had some wits about her to plan a future, horrid attack like this even while being mentally ill. How sad and depressing.
PAT FETTA July 16, 2014 at 04:41 pm
Hey Michelle, Who should pay for this lunatics mental health? The taxpayers? Take a look at thatRead More house she lived in!! Very expensive and she has a public defender? This family knew she was a nut case and they left that baby there as the baby was sleeping and felt she was safe. I hope she burns in hell and I hope the other inmates get to her. As much as I have compassion for the STUPID STUPID family they are responsible for that beautiful childs' death. She did not deserve to die at the hands of her own grandmother. I wish her nothing but pain. If somebody needs treatment for mental health then pay for it.

What a dummy...if I was the girl I would NEVER speak to him again, ever...he could easily haveRead More gotten her arrested & charged b/c she innocently revealed details about her job duties...trust is something a relationship is supposed to be built upon & not using that trusted information to commit an illegal act.

I've had way too many close calls from ignorant a-holes doing everything but paying attention to theRead More road. News flash; the world doesn't revolve around you, your twitter feed, your facebook posts, or reading the paper (yeah I've seen people reading the paper while driving). Get your head out of your a** and drive. You're only piloting a 3000+ pound missile, and it might actually require you to f**king pay attention.....

Harry Callahan July 14, 2014 at 08:56 AM - "... walk around with their I-Phones in theirRead More hands...I call them "THE WALKING DEAD". **MR. CALLAHAN, I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU!! *Last winter I was driving down a parking lot aisle at Walmart, Matteson, looking for a parking place. *AND I go slower than a snail because one never knows when a child will dart out, a car backs out without driver looking, etc., *This particular time I had stopped!! - BECAUSE a group of 3-4 women were walking TOWARDS my car. *AND one member of this group of 3-4 WAS SO BUSY TEXTING that she would have WALKED STRAIGHT INTO THE FRONT OF MY CAR - had not one of her friend pulled the "texting" woman to the side. *AND - HAD I NOT BEEN WATCHING AND KEEPING MY CAR MOTIONLESS - THAT WOMAN WOULD HAVE BEEN HIT! * "THE WALKING DEAD" is a very appropriate term! *Too many drivers go through store parking lots at a pretty fast clip in order to beat another driver to an empty parking place. *Those drivers pay NO ATTENTION to those walking - or - "THE WALKING DEAD"!

I absolutely think they should sue the murders families.. This young boy is only 13 yrs old he has aRead More whole life a head of him and alot of it was taken away because of these monsters. He should sue for everything they have since he had everything taken away from him in an instant..he needs to be well taken care of since he no longer has parents. Also if the murders family are any bit decent they will donate alot of money or even pick up the funeral cost for what there monster of kids did.

It's so sad and tragic and could have been avoided to the family my prayers are with you .

Why do so many people refuse to believe that evil exists in this world? If White had a gun it wouldRead More be all over the news how a mom was murdered by a gun, not the person using the gun. If she had had a gun and shot him we would proba ly never have known about this story.
